Deception Point by Dan Brown

Deception Point

When a new NASA satellite spots evidence of an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory...a victory that has profound implications for U.S. space policy and the impending presidential election. With the Oval Office in the balance, the President dispatches White House Intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton to the Milne Ice Shelf to verify the authenticity of the find. Accompa...

    This was read at the tail-end of my brief Dan Brown phase (let he who has never enjoyed an airport-bookstore novel cast the first stone), and by this point I was getting a little tired of Brown's storytelling formula. And by "formula", I really mean "formula". Here it is:How To Make A Guaranteed Bestseller in Fifteen Minutes or Less-1 intelligent, bookishly handsome man who in no way is supposed to be Dan Brown of course not why do you ask-1 real...

    The formula is pretty simple:Big Mystery + Male Protagonist + Female Protagonist + Code to Solve + OMG TRAITOR WITH TWISTED MOTIVES = Best Selling Novel.And it's worked, so I guess we can't hate on him too much. There are people who swear his books are the best thing they've ever read -- I certainly wouldn't say that. But they are successful and I have to confess, even I like them, and when it comes to books I am Picky with a most definite capita...

    I liked a lot this novel! NASA AND MY PERSONAL ADMIRATION FOR THAT INSTITUTION In my mind, the men and women of NASA are history's modern pioneers. They attempt the impossible, accept failure, and then back to the drawing board while the rest of us stand back and criticize. Back then in 2009, I found this novel by chance or fate.By then, I already knew who Dan Brown was (it's not like I was living in cave, hehehe) but I still have to read his w...

    My aunt gave this to me to read..I of course hate Dan Brown but I figure it'd be fast and I could thank her for it, mention some interesting tidbits that are no doubt sprinkled throughout the book for idiots, and feel good about family duty. There is not one paragraph that is close to some acceptable literary decency. In 2 pages he found it ok to mention coffee 5 times. No, not fun tidbits about the history of coffee but just as action filler: 'b...

    أول ما يلفت النظر في هذه الرواية هو أسلوبها السينمائي، ليس فقط في بناء الرواية وطريقة القص، بل في بناء الشخصيات نفسها.. أغلب كتابات دان براون تشعرك أنها كتبت خصيصاً بهدف تحويلها إلى أفلام، وقد تعاظم هذه الإحساس لدي مع روايتي "الحصن الرقمي" و"حقيقة ا...

    أشار المؤلف في بداية الرواية إلى أن كل التقنيات و الأسلحة الموصفة موجودة فعلا ... و نشرت الرواية عام 2001 لذا و بعد انتهائي لا يسعني سوى أتساءل في عام 2012 ما حجم ما وصلت إليه ناسا و لا نعلم عنه شيء ؟ و لأي درجة من التطور وصلت التقنيات التي تستخدمها القوات ...

    The good 'ole days of Dan Brown, that's for sure. This is by far his best book in my opinion. The book is readable and lacks the self-indulgence seen with so many other authors and so many other Dan Brown books!

    This is the third book by Dan Brown that I have read (the other two being The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons) and I think by now it's safe to say that I don't like him as an author. This book, like the others, reads too much like a Hollywood script for me (in fact I can totally see this being made into a movie). It's not necessarily a bad thing I guess, just not to my personal taste. Also, if you've read other books by him you'll know what to ...

    dear reader,My first Dan Brown novel. It kept me turning from page to page, thrilled by the action and fast paced plot. Lost by everything that was going on at once for more times I can care to count. Baffled at the new information the author was hurling at me all at once. Confused by the sudden and unexpected plot twists. And frustrated at the stupidity of human simpleness when reasoning possible motives for the death of their comrades or whatev...

    Another fast-paced thriller dealing with the NSA from Dan Brown. I found this novel to be right on par with Digital Fortress and thought that it was a very well-written thriller. From start to finish Deception Point takes the ball and runs with it like any other Dan Brown thriller. I like that the plot moves around in scenery from the Arctic to Washington, DC and a few points in-between keeping the action flowing and the characters moving around ...

    أنا أعتبر دان براون كاتب عبقري له قدرة مذهلة في خلق الإثارة والتشويق والتي غالباً ماتكون في ظل مؤامرات ومطاردات بين أطراف كثيرة ، أسلوب السرد مشوق ووصفي للغاية ، كذلك طريقة الإنتقال من مشهد لآخر تصويرية جداً ، الذي يجعل روايات براون سينمائية من ال...

    رواية مفعمة بالاثارة زاد من جمالها ذلك الخيال المرتبط بالتكنولوجيا وتلك المعلومات التقنية التي وظفها دان براون ضمن نسق منظم وجميل . لا يخلو الكتاب من نقد مبطن وايضا صريح لامريكا وذلك الاسراف الذي يضيع هباء من اجل الهوس الفضائي والغلو فيه يعيب الرو...

    After I read The DaVinci Code, which I liked, and Angels and Demons, which I loved I put the other Dan Brown books on my wish list. I was recently sent this one as part of a bookring and decided to read it.Rachel Sexton works for the National Reconnaissance Office as an intelligence officer. She is also the daughter of a Senator currently running for President. Her father's main offensive, and a very popular one, against the incumbent President i...

    So bad. I was annoyed that it took so long to reveal how bad of a book it was that I had to finish just to see where the lame plot twists ended up.It is just too far fetched. The Father Sexton character is not believable at all. No father would act like that. Dan Brown looked up a little science to base his book on but "Deception Point" is about logic and statistical accuracy which he didn't research at all. The holes in these scientists' logic m...

    Ok I have read 4 of the 5 Dan Brown books and I have come up with a user friendly recipe that anyone can use to create their own pulp fiction Dan Brown creation.Add 1 strong, intelligent, attractive career woman.Add 1 semi-strong, (but not as strong as the woman) man, that is semi-sucessful in his chosen career path (but not as successful as the woman) attractive, sensitive and totally not threatened by the strong intelligent woman.Mix these two ...

And it isn't just any meteor. Inside the huge rock, which crashed to earth in 1716, are fossils of giant insects proof of extraterrestrial life. Yet, given NASA...

    Absolutely wonderful. I'm saying that right at the beginning. I love this Dan Brown book so much to the point of fangirling. I think this is Mr. Brown at his best and perhaps his more underrated books out of everything he's published so far. I also have no idea why it's not being made into series. Perhaps that's a good thing because too much of a good thing can make the magic disappear, but I think I could live with one or two more Michael Tollan...

    "Deception Point" is one of my favorite books from Dan Brown. And although I have to admit that for my taste Dan Brown novels are sometimes a bit too archetypal and with a Hollywood blockbuster style, in general, I think it's a book that achieves its goal: to entertain the reader.The rhythm of the novel is frantic and the plot of the essential "conspiracy" of Dan Brown's books for me is one of the best and most interesting. I have always felt a g...

    Deception Point by Dan Brown I read 'The Da Vinci Code' & 'Angels & Demons'. I quite enjoyed them. 'Deception Point', published in 2001 is another story (no pun intended). I could only stomach 30 pages before i threw in the towel. What a load of unmitigated, illogical, wooden, cliched rubbish. But i'll waste another 20 minutes out of my life to tell you why. In the first few pages some bloke out in the frozen wastes of (Antarctica?) is descended...

    Dan Brown is never going to win any literary awards that's for sure. Mixed metaphors abound ("a searing pain sliced into her head..." etc), the use of the word "ephemeral" where I'm pretty sure he means "ethereal", and the explanation of how due to a childhood accident where our main character fell into a frozen lake, she now suffers from "hydrophobia". As there's no further reference to her foaming at the mouth, I can only assume he means "aquap...
